Tuscola High School art students Ashely Zander, 12th grade, and Rachel Lindsey, 11th grade, were recently recognized by the VFW of Waynesville. The two students competed in the Young American Creative Patriotic Art Contest sponsored by the Ladies Auxiliary of the VFW. At a recent VFW meeting, the students were presented with awards, checks, and pins.
Using color pencils, Lindsey drew a collage of the American flag, Statue of Liberty, New York City skyline, and several other famous monuments and landmarks. Her artwork won first place in the contest and will advance to the state competition in June.
Zander, who will attend the Savannah College of Art and Design this fall, placed second in the contest with her artwork that combined watercolor paints and color pencil.
